Flowers and plants

Flowers and plants can be recycled at home in your food and garden bin. Please remove any packaging, film, plant pots and large amounts of soil.

Other garden waste that can be recycled at home includes:

• Leaves
• Grass cuttings
• Hedge clippings
• Twigs and small branches
• Weeds (no Japanese Knotweed or Himalayan Balsam)

You can also recycle garden waste at a recycling centre. If you are taking food and garden waste to a recycling centre, it must be separated. If you take a mixed bag of food and garden waste it will have to go in the non-recyclable containers. This is because the recycling centres are not licensed to accept food waste.

You can also compost your garden waste in a home compost bin. To find out more visit Let’s Compost Now.
